Camera Gear

I’m often asked what cameras and other equipment I use for my photography. In the past – particularly when I used to shoot weddings and portraits fairly regularly – I opted for medium format gear, and in terms of SLR/DSLR options have been wedded to Canon for as long as I can remember. However, I have to confess that I’ve been completely won over by Sony and their leading edge mirrorless camera technology, and these days my photographic equipment consists of the following (subject to change, of course, because the lure of new equipment is something of a constant):


Sony a7R ivA (full frame, 61MP) with the following lenses:

Sony FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS (general purpose/walkabout)

Sony FE 85mm F1.8 (headshots/portraits)

Sony FE 90mm f2.8 Macro G OSS (watches, etc.)


Sony a6300 with 16-50mm F3.5 PZ OSS lens (fantastic camera – 24MP APS-C sensor with the fastest AF available when released, and easily pocketable)



Elinchrom D-Lite RX4 (x3)

Elinchrom D-Lite 4it (x2)

Metz 64 AF-1 speedlight

Godox VL150 COB LED (x2)
